I read an article found on Lifehacker (http://lifehacker.com/5932586/make-work-feel-less-like-work-with-the-8020-rule) that resonates with me.
The funny thing is, most of us are already doing this anyway, albeit not in the way we think. The majority of the american workforce steals time for themselves every day. In fact, certain working methodologies allow for this and assume that the “ideal” workday is somewhere between 75% and 81%. True indeed, some of that “extra” time is given to meetings and what not, but on average at least a full hour is viewed as non-productive, every day.
Today I geeked out with some very cool people over at the University of North Florida. Special thanks to Bayer White and his cohorts for putting together a great event full of fun, learning and awesome content.
My talk was of course about Cortana… but a significant break from the regular rhetoric. Today, it was all about Cortana Skills and proof positive that Cortana is/can be useful (and intriguing!) on Android and iOS as well. As promised to those folks who braved my one hour session, here is the slide deck that we covered. Thanks again for attending!
